Following yesterday’s short teaser trailer, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has officially announced their next upcoming video game: LEGO DC Super Villains. This new game will explore what happens when the Justice League is gone and villains get to do as they wish. In other words, this new video game takes a whole new spin on classic LEGO games as it will allow you to play as the villains of the DC universe rather than the heroes.
Perhaps one of the coolest things to point out from the LEGO DC Super Villains video game is the unprecedented amount of customization options that players will get. Right from the get-go, fans will have to create their own character, which they’ll be able to customize with new powers and abilities as they progress through the game. Not only that, but your character will blend in seamlessly to the game’s campaign and it’ll get to interact with the whole range of DC villains that the game will provide.
The game will be hitting stores on October 16 and it will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. There will also be a Deluxe Edition of the game which includes an exclusive Lex Luthor Superman minifigure as well as a Season Pass and early access to the DC Super-Villains: TV Series DLC Character Pack. This DLC pack will most likely include characters from the CW & Fox shows.

“LEGO DC Super-Villains provides players a fun and humorous way to cause mischief by unleashing their DC Super-Villain’s sinister powers and amusing abilities,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “With an unprecedented amount of customization options to choose from, players can create and customize their character at the start of the story, unlocking new powers and abilities as they progress through the funniest LEGO game to date.”
“The original story in LEGO DC Super-Villains flips the DC universe upside down as players embark on an unforgettable adventure starring memorable villains set across notable DC locations,” said Ames Kirshen, Vice President, Interactive & Animation, DC Entertainment. “DC’s roster of iconic Super-Villains is unmatched and fans will love teaming up with The Joker, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor and a host of others to save Earth from a greater evil.”
“LEGO DC Super-Villains gives players a new way to play with their favorite DC characters with a splash of light-hearted, villainous antics,” said Sean McEvoy, VP Digital Games, The LEGO Group. “Players will enjoy exploring the expansive DC universe in the way only a LEGO game can deliver.”
In LEGO DC Super-Villains, the Justice League has disappeared, leaving Earth’s protection to a newcomer group of heroes from a parallel universe, proclaiming themselves as the ‘Justice Syndicate’.

An exclusive LEGO minifigure, Lex Luthor Superman, also comes with the physical version of the Deluxe Edition, while digital consumers will receive the Justice League Dark DLC Character Pack with their Deluxe Edition.
